A new Bar Italia

Bar Italia has been the heart of Ponte a Serraglio for decades. It was the first place I went to when I arrived in the village almost 15 years ago. I go there, or to Il Monaco, both belonging to hardworking Annalisa, every day when I am in my apartment. Annalisa is ably helped by her sister Suzanna and her team.

Bar Italia has closed for a little while for renovations. Luckily, Il Monaco will take over until the new bar is ready. I don’t know where I would be without my morning coffee and sfoglia.

There was a send off on the last night of the old bar and friends gathered for the party. I was not there, but others have taken photos to share. Thank you Paola, Paul and Collette.

The plans for the new bar were discussed.

Several people chipped in to begin the demolishing of the old bar.

Last to go was the coffee machine.

I hope the lovely lady stays.

I wish Annalisa the very best and look forward to the brand new bar. I will be there for the grand opening. I’m sure there will be another party and everyone will be invited.

  1. It was also the place we stopped when we first came to Bagni di Lucca. I am not quite sure I like the old place to go as it had a decadent charm… We shall see…
    I do hope that they will not change the recipe for the sfoglie… they are the best!
    In any case, best wishes to Annalisa and her team!
